Fritz stood in his tiny garage/lab. “The Ipswitch Camera never became popular,” he said.
“Why not?” said his neighbor, Garrett.
“It physically removed the subject from reality, converting it to a photo.”
“That could be troublesome.”
“But!” Fritz held up a vial of blackish fluid. “I’ve made the process reversible.”
Fritz placed an ancient photo, a boat resting by a river, on the dusty desk. He dribbled fluid upon it.
Fritz and Garrett extricated themselves from the collapsed garage, destroyed by the sudden presence of a boat.
Garrett groused, “When you restore that picture of a building, let’s do it outdoors!”
Each week, The Friday Fictioneers join together to discuss secret and ancient technologies long forgotten. Not really. We do something even more fun. We write! Up to 100 words (give or take a few) can be written from a photo prompt. This is my story based upon the photo prompt at the top. Look here for even more stories written about the photo: https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2015/01/21/16-january-2015/
